About Us

We are Sustrans. We are the charity that makes it easier for people to walk and cycle.

We are engineers and educators, experts and advocates. We connect people and places, create liveable neighbourhoods, transform the school run and deliver a happier, healthier commute.

Sustrans works in partnership, bringing people together to find the right solutions. We make the case for walking and cycling by using robust evidence and showing what can be done.

We are grounded in communities and believe that grassroots support combined with political leadership drives real change, fast.

Our vision

We make it easier for people to walk and cycle because it leads to:

·Happier, healthier people

·Greener, better local environments

·Stronger economies and communities


What we do

Connect people and places by developing routes that provide an easy and safe way to get in and out of places. 

Create liveable neighbourhoods by working with communities to reclaim their streets and transform them into lively, community-centred places.

Transform the school run and commute by helping everyone discover the joy of cycling and walking, developing better routes for them to use, and encouraging support from their communities.

We walk and bike the talk. 

We make the case for change by showing what can be done and influencing decision makers. Working with individuals and communities, we make walking and cycling an easy and everyday choice.

With over 40,000 supporters and 4,000 volunteers we are grounded in communities who want to see more of the change we can make happen.
